The effect of a high-fat diet on growth, sexual maturation, and developmental changes in serum levels of estradiol (E2), growth hormone (GH), somatomedin-C (Sm-C), and insulin were examined in outdoor-housed premenarchial rhesus monkeys. From 16 to 32 months of age, females were fed either a high-fat diet (HFD, N = 5) with 31% calories from fat or a control diet (commercial laboratory chow, N = 10) with 12% of the calories from fat. Maintenance on a HFD did not accelerate physical growth, as… CONTINUE READING
